Scientist urges Holy See to drop mandates, apologize for 'grievous error'
ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) The world's leading expert on COVID-19 is calling on the Vatican to end its vaccine advocacy and mandates and "immediately apologize" for the "grievous error" of "violating a critical code of bioethics."
Pope Francis that life is a gift, Dr. Peter McCullough blames the pontiff for "giving a gift of the loss of life" and warns that the Vatican "will have to account for potentially hundreds of thousands of lives lost due to the vaccine worldwide."
In an interview with Vaticanist Edward Pentin published Tuesday on the journalist's website, the eminent cardiologist, epidemiologist and internist McCullough urges the Holy See to "immediately start a public interest campaign on vaccine injuries and vaccine deaths."
Pentin's interview follows Church Militant's exclusive interview with medical scientist and inventor of the mRNA vaccine technology Dr. Robert Malone, who urged Pope Francis to reconsider his vaccine extremism and to give individuals the freedom of choice to accept or reject medical intervention.
"This is not a matter of lack of education. This is a problem of complicity. This will go down in history as the Vatican is complicit in the mass loss of life of people by injections," McCullough warns. "The Vatican and all religious leaders have all the information they can possibly have. These systems are open systems."
"If the vaccines were safe and effective, nobody would be wearing N95 masks in the Vatican. Things ought to be self-apparent at this point," the doctor emphasizes.
"I consider myself the most qualified person to opine on COVID-19 and the vaccines than anybody in the world [sic] and that can be messaged directly to the pope," McCullough maintains. "If he wants to talk to the top authority in the world, I'm open to a conversation, but it won't be comfortable for him. So he needs to be warned about this."
The Dallas-based scientist has 54 peer-reviewed publications on COVID-19 and over 660 peer-reviewed publications in the National Library of Medicine. He has also chaired or participated in 2,000 days of safety-monitoring boards.
McCullough, who has testified before Senate committees and given evidence on the danger of the jabs before Sen. Ron Johnson's COVID-19 panel, told Pentin that "someone at age 65 is more likely to die with the vaccine than taking their chances with COVID-19 and dying of COVID-19 respiratory illness."
"There's a fivefold greater chance of dying with the vaccine. This is because if you take your chances with COVID-19, you may or may not get the illness," the expert warns, lamenting that authorities promoting the jab are unable to provide an alternative interpretation of data in over 1,000 peer-reviewed studies that question the safety of the vaccines.
"Those who are advocating the vaccines do not give any support for their safety or efficacy — doctors included," says McCullough. "What the public is not getting is fair scientific information, and the public can see this."
"I cannot stand by and watch this happen without speaking out. I do not see how any Christian can," says McCullough, a Methodist. "You can tell by the gravity of these findings and these revelations: This is not a debatable thing. People are losing their lives due to this vaccine."
Responding to the justification that vaccine fatalities are rare, McCullough remarks, "When we're up to 21,000 Americans [who have died], this is actually worse than a war. We never said war casualties were 'rare.' We took note of every war casualty."
"Every single vaccine death should be taken seriously. We can't just write off human life with a casual stroke of a pen. It's unacceptable; it's immoral; it's illegal," he stresses.
"Typically for a drug, if there's [sic] five unexplained deaths within 30 days, it's a black box warning," McCullough observes. "If there are 50 deaths within 30 days, irrespective of causality — because we can never really assess causality, just if it happens temporally — if we get to 50 deaths, the product's off the market."
The vaccines are known to have a "dangerous mechanism of action," the doctor explains. "They are forms of genetic material, either messenger RNA or adenoviral DNA, that are loaded onto lipid nanoparticles," which, by design, travel to "organ systems in the body, where it would be deleterious to have genetic material delivered."
Unlike European countries and the United States, the Vatican does not have a database recording adverse events and deaths from the COVID jabs.
Church Militant asked the Holy See Press Office if such a system was in place and if the Vatican was prepared to pay compensation to victims of vaccine injuries or deaths. There was no response as of press time.
In August 2021, Vatican City imposed a "Green Pass" enforcing institutionalized coercion and discrimination in violation of the Nuremberg Code, the Italian Constitution and a recent Council of Europe resolution.
On Dec. 23, Vatican secretary of state Cdl. Pietro Parolin issued a decree requiring proof of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 for all Vatican employees. Failure to abide by the decree will be considered "unjustified absence with the consequent suspension of pay for the duration of the absence."
A fresh decree issued Jan. 5 compels all visitors and staff to get the booster as a condition of entry to the Vatican from Jan. 31 onward. The decree extends the obligation to all Holy See personnel and to all its institutions within the extra-territorial areas of the Vatican.
